Hi, I’m Jack and I have what I like to think of as adventures in museums, most people would probably call it an inabilty to resist wandering around rooms full of artefacts for hours on end. So I decided to start a blog chronicling my exploits.
I visit museums, galleries and other cultural places; the big ones, the small ones and all the ones in between. I have a particular soft spot for the odder kinds of museums, so if you have any recommendations, please let me know.
What I Do
When I’m not exploring them I’m usually working in museums; I do lots of digital stuff in/with/about museums in my day job as Content Coordinator for Show Me, a website that reveals all sorts of great things from museums and is aimed at children and young people 7-14. On the weekend I can usually be found in the British Museum, facilitating family workshops in the Samsung Digital Discovery Centre.
Before I started all that though, I volunteered with Kids in Museums (with whom I’m still working with as their Sign Up Manager) and the Cartoon Museum, where I learned a lot about how museums work, in return I helped them get their social media up and running.
I have also set up the online Museum of Museum Badges as a way to share my collection of Museum Badges as well as my Museum Adventures.
And so, here I am Adventuring!
